My favorite place to take visitors! Be sure to leave your mark on Seattle by leaving a piece of gum on the wall and don't be afraid to make art with it

It's definitely an interesting attraction in Seattle. Maybe don't touch it...? But come visit to see this wall covered with gums over since 1993. It was removed a few years back, but started all over again!

It's Instagram worthy and fun to look at. A quick detour while you're at Pike Place.

Pretty easy to miss this place if you don't know about it. While you're here go upstairs to the market and catch a fish!

The gum wall is certainly worth a quick glance, especially since it’s free! There’s a heart shape from some lime green gum that my wife and I put on the wall. See if you can find it.

I mean, how can you NOT love a giant wall of chewed-up gum? And in case you were wondering, yes I added some. Bring your own gum to add, or buy stale bubblegum for 25 cents at many of the small trinket shops within Pike Place Market.

It gets very crowded due to visitors taking pictures, although it's a fun place to check out.

What else can be said? It is a wall covered in gum. A very kitschy spot in Seattle with a great history. Do the Savor Seattle tour to get the deets. Get Kat's tour if you can!

Very unique considering the many efforts to clean the wall, but now becoming a landmark in Seattle.

Perfect little spot for a free photo! The gum wall makes a great background! Make sure to leave your gum behind! Don’t forget your hand sanitizer!

After visiting the pike place market, make your way here to the gum wall which is right next door. There's an aisle filled with already chewed gum stuck in every possible space. It's gross but super colorful and unique. Definitely a picture worthy spot. Make sure to stick to the tradition and add your wad to the wall too!

What a unique tradition and what a scenery backdrop for crazy pictures. We just wish they would stop power washing all the gum off.

This is fun to see, even if it is a little gross. Go ahead and wander around post alley afterwards and make your way to Pike Place.

It's kind of cool, in a gross way. Bring hand sanitizer. It was deserted when I went. Just a stop-and-see place.

Add your DNA to the wall! Ever chew gum and have no place to put it?! Add it to Seattle's world famous gun wall! Kinda gross but a definite must-see.

A very unusual site to see, but worth seeing. There is no where to but gum so make sure you bring your own.
